    I can't fucking stand Kellerman. Yeah I think he makes a lot of good points but his whole egotistical persona is so fucking annoying. His late afternoon talk show here in LA with Marcellus Wiley would be so much better if he just let Wiley talk and make more points then he does.

    On the Wesley J signing

    This is becoming the best bench in years so far on paper
    Also the summer league team looks great
    Lots of potential in some of those players
    (Hoping CDR gets a chance)

    You guys realize who Wesley Johnson is, right? This is the same guy that couldn't get on the floor for terrible Minnesota and Phoenix teams. He has done nothing since Syracuse.

    I wouldn't say he couldn't get on the floor. He's started 148 of the 194 games he's played in and has averaged 23 minutes a game over the course of his career. I am not trying to insinuate that he's been any good, but he has played quite a bit.

    Monta Ellis to Dallas is official, underrated move.. I'm a big Ellis fan, mainly for his ability to get to the paint. He's consistently leading most guards in that category, and a proven scorer. I've wanted to see him on a decent team for awhile now to kill his reputation as a selfish player.

    Monta Ellis to Dallas was a desperate move on Mavs part. Ellis is nothing but an inefficient scoring guard who lacks on the defensive end and is best suited as a 6th man on a contending team or a leading scorer on a lottery team.

    Where does Greg Oden end up? Miami seems to be the front runner but Spurs, Kings, Hawks, Mavs, and Pelicans are all in play here. I really wish he went to the Suns where Aaron Nelson and that medical staff could give him and those knees hope.

    Mike Miller being recruited hard by the Grizzlies but OKC in the hunt for him as well. OKC really needs a shooter off their bench.

    Gary Neal not being retained by the Spurs. Bulls really should make a run at him. They need a shooter who has playoff experience and toughness.

    I think the obvious choice for Oden is Miami where he'll have very little pressure on him and an opportunity to ease in minutes.

    And I think Monta can be a lot efficient than people think, on a more structured team with a proven number one scorer in front of him. Ellis has never had a pick and roll player as good as Dirk. And Monta's assist numbers have actually been trending up over the past several years.

    Today is the 20th anniversary of Reggie Lewis death. I was only 5 at the time and don't remember him as a player at all, but this was the first tragic sports news story that I remember hearing about.

    Suns trade Luis Scola to Indiana for Gerald Green, Mile Plumlee, and a 2014 1st round pick.

    The Suns now have three 1st round picks in next year's draft.


    Edit: And once again the Suns have an inferior brother on their roster.

    The Suns are doing what they should do. Stockpile those picks and in three years, assuming your GM makes the right moves, and you could be challenging for a playoff spot. If the Suns can add Wiggins, Parker, Smart or Randle in next year's draft, they would end up with a legit piece to build a franchise around.

    Says the Clippers fan.

    EDIT* You're probably not aware of this, but traditionally the Clippers are one of the worst franchises in all of sports. Not just basketball. In ALL of sports.

    It sounds like you started liking the Clips after they drafted Blake Griffin.

    Brandon Jennings to Detroit for Brandon Knight, Viacheslav Kravtsov and Khris Middleton.

    How on earth are Jennings and Smith going to co-exist? Two chuckers on one squad?

    That's a big upgrade for Detroit. Im excited to see what the Pistons bring. Brandon Knight doesn't look to be a winner at least right now, needs another year or 2. Jennings played with Ellis last season. Just watch those games to see

    Just chuck it up as often as possible and hope Monroe and Drummond clean up all the mess.. At least they'll be a little more interesting than the past few seasons' squad, still no playoffs.

    Toronto was playing over .500 ball after the Rudy Gay trade and added depth this offseason, they're a sleeper next season. I think that this is going to be a huge year for John Wall and that young Wizards team, in terms of taking the next step. Just a hunch.

    I'm just not buying the chemistry on that Pistons team until I see it, and I'm a huge Josh Smith fan.

    Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings may ultimately work out, but the Pistons long-term success will depend on the growth of Monroe and Drummond. Now I wonder -- with two guys who love jacking up shots they shouldn't be taking -- how many shots are taken away from those two (Monroe and Drummond)? Smith is a career 46.5% shooter but that figure would be so much higher if he would reduce the amount of outside shots he takes. Brandon Jennings shoots under 40% for his career. Jennings still has untapped potential, but I wonder if his game will come at the expense of KCP, Monroe and Drummond considering how much he chucks shots up. Within their division, I'd put them behind Indiana and Chicago, obviously, and if Bynum plays 60+ games, I put Cleveland ahead of them too.

    They are both high-risk / high-reward moves and I believe the chances of both panning out are slim.

    I think Chauncey will do fine distributing the ball for that team. He's already mentioned how he's there to teach leadership and responsibility to the younger players, especially Smith.

    Ummmm, 3 posts ago...


    A healthy Bynum helps put Cleveland in that group, but people forget that Cleveland also added Jarret Jack and Earl Clark along with their number 1 pick, Bennett. Dion Waiters averaged almost 15ppg as a rookie and Tristan Thompson is steadily improving. It won't take too much more than that in the East to sneak in, as long as Kyrie plays most of the season.

    Billups will be 37 when the season starts, so I don't see him occupying more than 20-25 minutes a game and I think that's a best-case scenario. As for the leadership, that could play a big role but I just don't see how Jennings and Smith mesh well together.

    They won't mesh well together. Billups and Smith might work, but not Jennings and Smith.

    So much hate on Jennings. The dude is a flat out baller, and has the potential to be one of the top pgs next season.
    And by the way the Raptors had a god awful March, I don't know what you guys see they have no impressive big men. They're gonna suck and Casey will lose his job. The Wizards look like they could turn it around but John Wall is still one of the best losers out there.
